Faust to challenge Anderson in 43A

The Plymouth Sun Sailor has reported that Clint Faust of Plymouth will seek the DFL endorsement for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 43A. Republican Sarah Anderson is the first-term incumbent.

According to the report, "
Faust, who has lived in Plymouth for 13 years, is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and financial advisor. He has been involved in the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce and has served on the board of directors of the Business Democrats."

The Sun Sailor reported Faust's potential campaign themes as property tax relief (presumably more local government aid funded by income and sales taxes), controlling health care costs (even more state health insurance), reducing the tax burden on the middle class (tax the rich), funding education adequately (blank check for Education Minnesota) and improving Minnesota's transportation infrastructure (tax for light rail trains instead of roads and bridges, bonding for zoo gorilla exhibits).

The incumbent House member in 43B is John Benson (DFL-Minnetonka). The state Senate is not up for election this year.

Both the DFL and Republican SD 43 BPOU conventions are tomorrow, March 8.
